Stories of Adventure Bundle

Curl up with a few good books this winter! This book bundle includes three remarkable nonfiction books to inspire readers who love the outdoors. The Unlikely Thru-Hiker by Derick Lugo, Blazing Ahead by Jeffrey H. Ryan, and Not Without Peril by Nicholas Howe.


The Unlikely Thru-Hiker is the story of a young black man setting off from the city with an extremely overweight pack and a willfully can-do attitude. What follows are lessons on preparation, humility, race relations, and nature’s wild unpredictability.


Blazing Ahead tells the remarkable story of the Appalachian Trail's creation. The idea could have died in the pages of a journal had it not been for the efforts of many people—including two, in particular: Benton MacKaye and Myron Avery.


Not Without Peril, a 2014 National Outdoor Book Award winner, offers extensive and intimate profiles of people who found trouble on New Hampshire's Presidential Range, from the nineteenth century through the present day.
